Library News - 'One Photo'
‘One Photo’ by Ross Watkins and Liz Anelli is a moving story we read and explored with the Year 3 and 4 classes this week. This book has been shortlisted for the prestigious award ‘Picture Book of the Year 2017’. In response to the text the Year 4’s were posed the question, “If you were to take just one photo of an object in your house that tells a unique story about you, what would it be?” What followed was a thoughtful and insightful discussion and many of the Year 4 students went home and used their device to take a photo which they then emailed to me. I have made a display outside the Library and invite you to come and view the images portraying our ‘student stories’. I have also included a number of examples in the picture below. The deep thinking and reflection elicited from this activity has exceeded my expectations. I am always delighted to share high quality books with the students and am grateful for the opportunity to do this on a weekly basis.
